*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 182716 ***

Okay, further research. On Mandriva, ohci_hcd is apparently loaded on
all systems in the initrd, due to a change in mkinitrd. I suspect this
is the same in Ubuntu.

Basically this boils down to: CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD_SSB=y is just wrong
for a general-purpose distribution. From the help for that option:

"Support for the Sonics Silicon Backplane (SSB) attached Broadcom USB
OHCI core.

This device is present in some embedded devices with Broadcom based SSB

If unsure, say N."

So it's apparently only useful for supporting a USB controller that only
exists in "some embedded devices". There's therefore no reason to enable
it for a general-purpose distro. I guess you guys should assign this bug
to your kernel team and have them disable that option. That's what I'm
doing for MDV.
